Well I've done it again! I've let a month go by before I actually write this review and I can not remember much of what I had to say about this book.
I can't actually remember it much at all. Which, is one reason I only gave it two stars. The story is kind of interesting at the time, but it's not memorable.
I actually liked this book less than Poblocki's other book The Stone Child. Where The Stone Child had a nice creepy vibe to it, I felt like The Nightmarys was trying too hard. The creepy parts sometimes just came off a goofy to me (a graffiti dragon with swirling eyes peeling itself off the wall and chasing the boy is a good example.)
It just didn't grab me. Maybe middle-grade 'scary' books are not my genre.
